Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) and Dignity Health announced a new network agreement that works toward improved health outcomes for employer groups and their employees. In this arrangement BCBSAZ PPO and HMO members, with coverage through their employers, will continue to have the choice of Dignity Health facilities and providers.

Both BCBSAZ and Dignity Health have a long history of commitment to Arizona. Working together for decades, the two organizations aim to help Arizonans get the care they need. The renewal of this agreement points to that shared vision.

“Providing affordable quality care with compassion is what we stand for,” said Dignity Health Vice President of Managed Care Ethel Hoffman. “Being a part of BCBSAZ’s network positions us to deliver on that promise as we continually explore new opportunities for improved care in Arizona.”

BCBSAZ members with employer coverage will continue to benefit from shared programs that help them improve their health. For example, BCBSAZ’s Patient-Centered Medical Home, which relies on evidence-based medicine, helps members better manage their chronic conditions.

“Providing options for quality care to our members is a priority for us,” said BCBSAZ Chief Medical Officer and Chief Health Strategist Dr. Woodrow Myers Jr. “The Dignity Health network agreement demonstrates both of our organizations’ commitment to affordable, reliable options for Arizonans.”
